In this mornings session there were questions about how to customize the appearance of your site without creating a new theme.

Let's talk about things like:

  • When do you need a custom theme and when can you avoid it?
  • When to create a sub-theme of an existing theme.
  • Ways to modify an existing theme without a subtheme.
    • CSS Injector¬†
    • CSS Editor
  • Modules that do things that might also be done in a theme
    • Fancy Blocks
    • Configurable Block Styles
    • Sticky Menus
